  • Product Name: NOW Better Stevia Organic Extract Powder

    8.2/10 Good sweet potency, great value

    Effectiveness: 8/10

    (+) Convenient,Good Value,large size less frequent purchases and more enviornmentally friendly
    (-)  Mixes Poorly,Tastes Bad

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "While it mixes better with warm beverages and it has a bit of a metallic after-taste, you cannot beat the value you get when you order the large 454g tub. It is not perfect, but it is pure stevia and it sweetens warm drinks quite well.
    I would NOT use it for baking."

  • Product Name: NOW Ascorbic Acid (100% Pure Vitamin C)

    6/10 Hard to mix but gets the job done

    Effectiveness: 6/10

    (+) Convenient,Good Value,Not as acidic as other brands
    (-)  Gave Me An Upset Stomach,Mixes Poorly,container could have a dosage indicator or spoon

    How did you use it?: Every Morning

    "For those who cannot afford buffered vitamin C, this is a much more affordable alternative. It does not mix great, I need to swish the cup a few times, and given the size of the container a scoop would have been a nice addition but if you have a kitchen/baking measuring spoon it will do."

  • Product Name: Optimum Gold Standard 100% Natural Casein Protein

    5.2/10 Good value, thick protein powder

    Effectiveness: 5/10

    (+) Builds Muscle,Good Value
    (-)  Gives Me Gas,Mixes Poorly,Very fine powder it flies everywhere

    How did you use it?: Before Bed

    "Casein is a dairy byproduct recommended for those who do High Intensity Interval Training or long-distance running / steady state cardio for lengthy periods of time, it is less about muscle-building and more about preventing muscle loss. It also helps with fullness so certain people may use it for weight loss.

    This product makes me feel less full than other casein products I have tried (from Naked nutrition and the Quest Mix), and the taste is okay but I am sure there is stevia or another type of sweetener included.

    Please note you will need roughly 50% more water/yogurt/fruit for this to mix properly. And also, if you like cottage cheese the dry curd type has pretty much the same amount of casein per gram, so this is more for convenience than nutrition."
